Martin Dickinson – 1,000 Runs

CONGRATULATIONS DICKO!

Congratulations to Martin Dickinson who reached the feat of scoring 1,000 runs for the club in the 2nd XI’s defeat to Scotton 2nd XI at the ACG on the 23rd June 2018.

Martin helped himself to 58 runs before getting himself run out, then followed up with the only 2 wickets to fall in the 2nd innings to return 2-42.

Martin becomes the 26th player in Arthington league history to reach 1,000 runs and his effort on Saturday also saw him overtake last week’s fellow 1,000-club member Alex O’Neil to become the 24th highest run-maker for the club.

Martin’s achievement came from his 46th match for the club. He has amassed a total of 1,039 runs since his debut in 2013, helping himself to 1 century and 4 fifties along the way. He currently holds an Arthington career average of 25.98. Martin has also claimed 10 wickets for the club.

Congratulations again to Martin from all at Arthington Cricket Club.

Alex O’Neil – 1,000 Runs

CONGRATULATIONS ALEX!

Congratulations to Alex O’Neil who reached the feat of scoring 1,000 runs for the club in the rain-affected match against Helperby 2nd XI at the ACG on the 16th June 2018.

Alex hit an unbeaten 41 as the 1st XI racked up a mammoth 314-4 after just 40 overs. The hard-hitting run machine becomes the 25th player in Arthington league history to reach 1,000 runs and his effort on Saturday also saw him overtake Lawrence Barraclough to become the 24th highest run-maker for the club.

Alex accomplished the milestone in only his 27th match for the club. In our league history, only 3 players have scored more than 1,000 runs in fewer matches than Alex – Ben Lake, James Brennan and Naveed Andrabi – so Alex has joined a very elite club with this effort.

He has amassed a total of 1,028 runs since his debut in 2016, helping himself to 2 centuries and 6 fifties along the way. He currently holds a very impressive Arthington career average of 46.73.

Congratulations again to Alex from all at Arthington Cricket Club.
